Alexis Cardigan

Alexis Cardigan

C$9.00Price

The Alexis cardigan is a drop shoulder design, knit from the top down, flat and seamlessly with an integrated button band. It features the same lace motif and mix of Worsted weight wool held together with mohair as for the Alexis vest.

 

There are short rows to shape the shoulders. We start with the collar for the back neck, then stitches are cast on for the shoulders and stitches are picked up along the collar piece to knit the back to the underarms. Stitches are picked up along the shoulders to knit the right front to the underarms and the same is repeated for the left front.

 

Stitches are joined to knit the body flat. Stitches are picked up to knit the sleeves in the round.
